”I am certain that her inclusion as a key factor in our service agenda is one decision that would bring great returns on investment,” the governor stated.
Makinde disclosed that he searched wide before finally settling for Adeosun, a technocrat.
”Some people would argue that the best person for the job is a politician who understands the terrain as they put it,
